Erotic and intriguing...

Online platforms and lust—one of the most intriguing combinations; she can't touch, she can't smell, yet for Mikaela, Mr. Santana is as real as he could ever be. The first two chapters (published so far) set an exciting premise. Will her fantasies materialize? How far will they go?

The writing style fits the narrative; the lack of physical connection is expressed through virtual communication. I can't comment more, I feel like I need to know Mikaela better. That's why I can't wait for more chapters!

Good Job!

Dark and Mysterious

Used and abused, Amari, the cursed princess, has spent most of her life being controlled by the most toxic men. Even though at the first glance she might seem like a cliche broken damsel in distress, Amari exhibits her unique strength that, in my opinion, might unravel in the later chapters.

The world story is set in is magical, to say the least; the descriptions immerse the reader into the mysterious and dream-like lands. The dialogue is realistic and conveys the emotions that are one of the most prominent aspects of this novel. GREAT JOB!

A few notes I'd like to add:
There were some inconsistencies when it comes to technicalities; sometimes the narrator jumps between past and present tenses which makes reading a bit confusing. Also, there are some unnecessary repetitions (e.g.: "The green dress slid down her thin BODY. Fear crept up her BODY.) and some sentences/paragraphs lack effective connecting, but nothing too distracting.

Overall, even though the story needs some polishing, it is definitely captivating and intriguing. I felt as if the first four chapters are only the beginning and I can't wait to find out what happens next!

THANKS for a lovely reading experience!!!

Entertaining and Educational!

When I was getting into this book I had no idea, I would be so intrigued, I’d spend the rest of my evening learning more and more about the Korean culture! I’m so thankful ❤️

The author uses captivating descriptions to immerse the readers into the world the story is set in—from the vast landscapes to the finest details of everyday life, including descriptions so specific, it felt as if I could actually touch it! I also want to praise author’s ability to intertwine extremely interesting facts about the Korean culture into the plot without losing the overall flow❤️

The dialogues have grabbed my attention from the very fist chapter, especially the children’s (that, I believe, are the most difficult to write without sounding odd) ! They’re crafted realistically and never out-of character, and has made reading flow nicely and gave each character a unique personality.

Overall, the book is written so well, I’m sure that it will be perfect for both history nerds and for people who have no idea how Korea used to be like.

Now, a few things that could be improved:

• At some parts jumping from past to present tenses was a bit odd. However, it might have been intentional (?)

• In some cases there’s a lack of balance between character-driven and story-driven story telling, but nothing too distracting.

Overall, I’m very keen on reading more of your works. Keep up the great work ❗️❗️❗️

Unique reading experience

“We lose ourselves in books. We find ourselves there too.”

The same could be told about Where the Devil Says Goodnight, a story so real you could feel each gust of wind; each complex emotion written in a unique and well-structured way. Each character (especially the protagonist, Micheal) is completely distinct, yet so life-like, making the reading experience more vivid and colorful.
Another driving point is the setting, a small Irish town, which will immerse any reader, even the one who's tasted Ireland only by watching The Fall! The use of the Irish language also greatly contributed to the building of the atmosphere and definitely enriched the reading experience.

Combined with an exceptional writing style, Where the Devil Says Goodnight is a must-read!
